My time at Goldsmiths was hugely influential for both my personal and academic development. I chose the course at Goldsmiths as engaging with human rights through a Sociological lens and learning about not only theoretical debates but also acquiring practical skills really appealed.
My experience was both positive and challenging. Studying Sociology at Goldsmiths makes you think outside the box and question what you previously didn't. The well-organised structure of the course meant that I could engage with the core debates in human rights, culture and justice whilst also developing my own interests in gender and women's rights. My final dissertation was an exploration into how the language of human rights and social justice is used by young women in contemporary Britain in the everyday.
My tutors were encouraging, constructive and passionate. Our classes were filled with interesting and like-minded people who have now become friends. After having such a positive experience at Goldsmiths I now intend to pursue a career in academic research.
